School nurses are often alone in their profession within the individual school, which places high demands on the ability to work independently, make their own decisions and be confident in their area of expertise. Through their accessibility, the school nurse has a central position to identify and capture pupils with mental health problems and early provide of support to foster students' development and learning.

Prevention and health promotion are important, but the time and the conditions specified for this purpose are lacking.
